S153A

The S153A Active 3 Axis Cladding Alignment Fusion Splicer has been enhanced and updated to version 2. The battery is automatically charged internally when connected to AC mains power even during operation. The new illumination lamp lights up a wide area around the V-grooves and helps operation in low light environment. The redesigned and strengthened heater simplifies the protection sleeve loading process.


S153A is the first choice for low cost field splicing equipment. The Active V-Groove technology used on the S153A delivers low loss splices with ease while eliminating common Fixed V-Groove splicing errors.

*1 - The first heating after turning on the power can be longer than the usual heating time.

*2 - The number of the splicing and heating the machine can produce using a fully charged brand new battery at room temperature of 20C, semi-auto mode for splicing and regular mode for Heating. Depending on the condition of the batteries and operation environment, the number can vary.

*3 - The number of the splicing and heating the machine can produce using 2 fully charged brand new batteries at room temperature of 20C, semi-auto mode for splicing and regular mode for Heating. Depending on the condition of the batteries and operation environment, the number can vary
